While not on the scale of the finely aged 30-year-old Spirit of Gettysburg, the YWCA’s annual Encore 5K for Breast Cancer Awareness is an Adams County rite of autumn in its own right. This year — surprise — it’s gone virtual, along with just about every organized run or walk you might find.

Before we let you know how you can still register for this year’s event, let’s talk about why you should do so.

Mark Purdy is coordinator of Communications and Events at the YWCA Gettysburg and Adams County. Reach him at or 717-334-7150 x113.
